Question about 2006 Ford Ranger

1 Answer

Car has been sitting 5 months without being started

2002 Honda Accord has been sitting 5 months without being started. It worked fine before and had a relatively new battery, but due to a flat tire, I started using another car, and did not have time to have the tire replaced. I jump started it, tried it an hour later, and it started up. Next day, it did not start. A week later, tried to start it with a stand-alone jump starter, and it did not work.

The battery may be shorted out. do you have a meter to check a batteries condition? if not take the battery into the parts store and they can tell you if it has a dead short in it which means the plates inside the battery have sulphated together and wont allow current to pass through them. lead acid batteries are real bad about this if they go completly dead even if they are newer batteries.

Try the fuel filter. When the car has been sitting fuel actually accumalates in the filter. As you driver the fuel is still getting through but at a diminished capacity hence the reason for the sluggish performance as it warms up. This will happen until the clog get sobad that the engine will stall. As the car sits again fuel again buid up in the filter and the car will start but because there is a gap in the fuel supply between the exit of the filter and the fuel rail a slug of fuel enters into the combustion chamber causing the backfire.

Replace the pgmfi relay (main relay), it's up under the drivers side dash and has "mitsuba" written on the side. They were a common problem, relatively cheap and really just maintenance after this long. If that doesn't solve your problem, you'll need a new distributor.

Car starts, but when warm shuts down ,has to sit for 5 to 10 minutes before being able to start back up, seems like its not getting spark


Sounds like the typical main relay problem on your Accord. It runs fine, but when warm, will not restart for a few minutes after you shut it off. Have the main power relay replaced.

1996 5 speed honda accord. sat for a year. put in new battery. everything lights up, but car wont start. never had previous problem.


Are you saying the car turns over (cranks) but it does not start? Or, the car is Not turning over?
If it is cranking over but not starting, and it ran fine before sitting for the year, it may be water/moisture in the gas. Try some dry gas, and/or Carb-fuel injection cleaner in your gas tank.

Check your compression. If you don't have a compression checker, take the plugs out, shoot a squirt of oil in each cylinder, replace plugs and crank engine. If engine starts, you are probably looking at a bad set of rings.
